TIOBE Index for July 2014

Have you seen the latest TIOBE rankings report?

The TIOBE Programming Community index is an indicator of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month. The ratings are based on the number of skilled engineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors. Popular search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings. Observe that the TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

This month the data shows Apple’s new programming language Swift enters the TIOBE index at position 16. You will also see that Visual Basic, JavaScript, and Transact-SQL have moved slightly higher in the rankings from last year.
